the past four years, and into the recent election, the issue of health care has been at the center of our nation's great policy debates with implications beyond the health care industry packing our large -- impacting our larger fiscal policy and social concerns. we are fortunate to have with us today mr. brussard to share insights on the developing policy. prior to joining humana in 2011, he was an executive with the corporation, and before that, u.s. oncology. large producers and providers of health care products to major health care institutions. with that background, mr. brussard brings to the podium today a broad perspective on the health care issues facing the country. he has an undergraduate degree from texas texas a&m, and mba fm university of houston. we look forward to your comments today on this very important topic. thanks for being here.

davis ever when an actual election? >> he was a senator. wesson elections were -- and he was nominated in a constitutional convention as a moderate in montgomery alabama in february of 1861. i don't think he ever did stand for election. one of the things americans think, one of the things they're told, the confederate constitution was a replica of the u.s. constitution, but it was not. a number of crucial changes, and one of them was they had a one-term executive, and i believe it was 5-year executive term. he avoided reelection. >> professor mccurry, did -- was there a lot of political infighting during the war? >> yes. there was. and there were no for more -- for all political parties. one of the things that is interesting is that it so quickly became on the ropes that a lot of things that were planned never really materialized. and there was political opposition, but it was theoretically everybody was a democrat. there was no republican party. no republican party ticket offered in the south. you could not vote for lincoln. but there were all lined with the southern wing of the democ
and haurlting deportation of illegal immigrants just prior to the election. in the wall street journal he explains why republicans must embrace immigration reform. 70 percent of the 12 and a half latino voters cast votes for the president in the last election. quote, i think it's a rhetoric by a handful of voices in minority but loud nonetheless that allowed conservatives are anti hispanic and anti immigration. i don't think there's a lot of concern in this country that will somehow get over run by ph.d.'s and entrepreneurs. marco rubio sees this as a gateway issue for hispanic voters that could lead to migration for the republican parties if successful. if they want to over hall they need to convince big labor to go on board. >>> thanks so much. >> now it is my turn. >> thank you, jennifer. immigration will be the only tough fight ahead. president obama's promise he will tackle gun control in his second term and something that has already drawn fierce criticism. two of the cabinet picks will face confirmation battle. he will have to negotiate on the debt ceiling and see queststration. he

credit quality. well, we have an election two weeks from today, and american voters have a clear choice. are they going to vote for greater government support for such assistance? or are they going to let the private sector manage on its own? and i think there's an indicator of the right way to go, all we have to do is look at north dakota. north dakota where the unemployment rate is 3%, because of all the hydrofracking of oil and natural gas that is going on, on privately held land. every state wants to be like north dakota. and it's interesting that mitt romney would dissolve the decision as to whether to explore on land or not to the individual state, he let each individual state decide. so virginia, for example, the one to look for oil off its coast would be allowed to do so. that was revoked by the obama administration even though it was granted by the bush administration previously. alaska wants to do more oil exploration. everybody wants to get sources of energy in their state. so not going to be able to get the job of getting it out go but also to attract chemical manufacturing
. here he began promoting himself as a presidential candidate, looking to the election in 1940. the president did encourage him and he leased a farm in iowa a coors, but his hopes were dashed when hundreds of newspapers began reporting the story of a comments he allegedly made to a friend at the racetrack, which did not put the administration and the good life. the comment attributed to him was we shall tax and tax, spend and spend and elect any left. whether true or not, of course he denied it come is stuck with him the rest of his slaves and became a rallying cry for those who heeded this about in new deal. and if that wasn't enough, if cameron 1839, when moore broke in europe, harry found himself back at the mayo clinic and the doctors had ruled out a recurrence of cancer, but they couldn't figure out why he was unable to solar nature since. said they came up with a dog's breakfast of intravenous feeding, the transfusions, injections of liver extract, a combination which he had mr. t. had off and on for the rest of his life and sometimes it works and sometimes it didn't. but
autonomy lessons learned in collaboration through these public-private partnerships that elected the space station so there is all multipronged aspect that lead your plea to the bottom, not just the bottom line but the top line to what our economy does and what the jobs are being created both in michigan and all over the country. >> we have time for another question. >> i yield back my time. >> the chair now recognizes chairman smith for five minutes. >> thank you mr. chairman. let me address my first question to you. you report that there is not much support in the scientific and space community for a mission to a near earth asteroid in 2025. is such a mission absolutely necessary to help us get to mars or are there alternatives and are there alternative missions as well that can replace that mission to the asteroid? >> as we looked at the mengin to an asteroid that is in 2010 national space policy of the u.s., in addition to being widely accepted there were some shortcomings noted by some of the people that appeared before the committee. i know to -- i note as we look back over time ther
in the book about this a little. if senator kennedy had been alive, he was so critical to the election of president obama. his endorsement in the pivotal period with the turbulence in turmoil early after south carolina, i think he would have been important inside the system as a push towards something bigger and would have pushed to have more connection to outside the beltway. obama it is now traveling on the country. he is forced to because of the election. if you sit inside the beltway too long and get in the backroom deals -- >> even movements can be cloistered. i remember a dinner during the george w. bush administration in southern california. it was norman lear and his wife, larry david, bob scheer. they were sitting around w eeping in their expensive soup about the fact that we were living in hell. rupert murdoch on the media. george bush was president. norman lear had his pulse on american culture for 30 years. why cannot figure out how to deal -- deliver a message that is important and happening? >> that is important. we can find messages that speak to people where they are. t
not the most easy one. >> the new conservative dominance of policy thinking ended when barack obama was elected president. but today was the day that the obama administration made the single biggest play to define what comes next. what is t next. today, he nominated chuck hagel, in doing, he nominated the first vietnam veteran. >> he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that is something we only do when it is absolutely necessary. my frame of reference, he has said, is geared to the guy at the bottom who is doing the fighting and the dying. with chuck, our troops will always know just like sergeant hagel was there for his own brother, secretary hagel will be there for you. and finally, chuck represents the bipartisan tradition that we need more of in washington. for his independence, and commitment to consensus, he has earned the respect of national security and military leaders, republicans and democrats, including me. >> hagel will be the third republican secretary of defense appointed by the last two democratic presidents. william cohen, and bob ga
, looking to the election in 1940. the president gave encouraging and at least a farm in iowa, of course. but his hopes were dashed in hundreds of newspapers began reporting the story about a comment that he allegedly made to a friend at the racetrack, which did not put the administration in a good light, a comment attributed to him was, we shall tax and tax, spend and spend. whether true or not of course he denied it. it stuck with him for the rest of his life, and it became a rallying cry for those who hated the roosevelt and the new deal. and if that wasn't enough, in september 1939 when the war broke out in europe, harry found himself back at the mayo clinic. and the doctors had ruled out recovering cancer but they couldn't figure out why he was unable to absorb nutrients. so they came up with intravenous feedings, blood transfusions, injection of liver extract, a combination which he had administered to him off and on for the rest of his life. and sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. but for the rest of his life, he was unable to gain weight. his digestive system, i'll leave
the opposition seems weekend. they dropped their demand for fresh elections and called off a rival demonstration of their own. for now, there is no power vacuum. despite his absence. >> for more on his health, i am joined by the one who formerly served as the director of the central bank. he is so reviled here in washington and you see those people turning out for an inauguration where he is not present and this is not in north korea situation where there are forced in, they really love him. >> his talent is the ability to connect with the people and that he is taking care of their interests. and without him, they would be bereft of any protection. >> what kind of country are we going to find? >> a deeply divided country. it is divided as you saw, from those that don't like him and those that adore him. that is not a social divide. in which the middle class doesn't like him and the poor does. 45% voted against him. the country doesn't have a middle class. in order to get 45% of the vote, that means the millions of poor people voted against him but people also voted for him. they have a very stro
governme spending you were control is every, and thisser av tax cuts for everyone is over, he got elected arguing at least hiking taxes on the rich, is the country changing more barack obama's way? >> i think it is changing to this extent, that is that people do not realize, and unfortunately the republicans did not rebut what the period said when he said things like the rich are not paying their full share, as we pointed out they are paying more than their share, but nobody pointed out the facts on the other side. there is one big difference between the two presidents, that is ronald reagan always toi td e truth. neil: you have to wonder with a president who is set on not going far in spending cuts, and ascertaining more tax hikes, what the environment will be like in washington, especially with a lot of republicans they seem to be running scad. >> that is where just as mayor giuliani said, the republicans should not run scared, they should tell the truth, and get the facts out to the people. >> jim: but they are not doing it. >> they are not doing it. maybe the mainstream media is ignor
before the election this year, but did not get released until after the election for some reason, the official pentagon support on the readiness of afghan security forces says far from afghan security forces being ready to take the lead, it says out of 23 afghan army brigades, only one of those 23 brigades is capable of operating independently without support from international or u.s. troops. this is the graphic in that report that says that. brilliant graphic, right? this is how the pentagon presents data that it doesn't really want to make headlines. but i can interpret it for you. you see the 23 i've circled there? that's the number of brigades. how many brigades can operate, you see there, independent with advisers? well, oh, one. 1 of 23. even if you're bad at math, you can tell that's not good. the same report, the pentagon's own report shows after the u.s. troop surge in afghanistan, violence in that country was actually higher than it was before the surge, not lower than it was before the surge. so in what case was the surge a success? so it is a bit rich that the reason
exploited women not to the election on some of the sites so i wonder if you could give some reaction to the argument that is being put forward by some of the suppliers that they are worried when the control regime is damaging the market and i knew what the policy was in relation to the german activity to the extent you feel the system we have is adequate to control the supply components. >> dhaka controls are on the export can't those capable of traveling in the payload with 500 kilograms are subject to the strong presumption of denial. we are an advocate of strong controls and partners ensure that these remain appropriately controlled. given that there are more countries interested effective and appropriate controls will remain very important and that isn't to say the technology changes but a woman can beat commander important. >> what about the development of leasing or renting out drones? because this couldn't be a way of getting around the regulations. do you think it is and the u.k. itself to those have to comply to the same regulations where if he has things coming to assume th
a lot of money on the elections last cycle. they didn't have a lot to show for it especially if you look at results. a lot of their candidates lost. we are looking at return on their investment they had a low return on investment. they are very strong lobby. think the issue is who is going to remember the voices of the american people in this debate. >> reporter: president obama has said he wants to lay it on some of the proposals his task force gives him in the state of the union address. that task force led by the vice president is going to give president obama their recommendations on tuesday in the state of the union is scheduled for february 12th, one month from yesterday. >> gregg: peter, thanks very much. >> fox news is taking a closer look at the gun control debate with a special hannity airing tonight featuring a studio audience compromised some of the new yorkers who were outed by the journal news for having gun permits. that is at 9:00 p.m. eastern time right here on fox news channel. >> arthel: growing concerns over the shortages of flu vaccines as sick americans are overcrow

elected representatives although i consider myself neither a republican or democrat i look forward to working closely on both sides of the aisle. most importantly, my wife cathy to my children kyle, to my parents in new jersey, a shout out. owen who is 92. i can not be where i am today without their love, patience, understanding, and support. there's no way i can ever repay them except to say i will need it for a little bit longer. i am deeply grateful for this opportunity. it will be bittersweet to leave all of my close colleagues and friends here at the white house and that the national security staff but come to work with in respect so deeply. if confirmed by the senate i will consider it to be an honor of my life. >> these are four outstanding individuals. we are grateful to all of them. i want in particular to think mike morrell and leon panetta for their extraordinary service. i just want to repeat i hope the senate will act on these confirmations promptly. when it comes to security we do not bite to leave a lot of gaps between the time one set of leaders transitions out of a

springfield mall, but the by-product of the group of northern virginias top elected leaders gave a united message today to convince the fbi that the old dominion is the place that they want to be. >> if a decision is made on the merits, the merits being what's best for the country, what's best for the fbi, what's best for the fbi employees. i think that it will be in virginia. >> now congress will decide on the site requirements and then the gsa along with the fbi will pick the site, which will take several months. >>> all right, let's take a live look outside right now. topper will be back after the break. he has a full forecast for you. i can guarantee that you'll like this one. >>> and right after the break, big changes coming to sleeping pills. and it is suppose to keep us safer when we use them. we'll talk about that. >>> in tonight's health alert, the makers of ambient and other sleeping pills are going to have to lower the dosage and the drugs. the food and drug administration said that new research suggests that the drugs might cause morning drowsiness. as they explain, that incre
that president car are sooi stole the last election. just have a listen. >> correctly seen as illegitimate as many afghans and by people around the world. he runs a corrupt regime. his vice president according to these documents had $53 million in cash going to dubai. there is no legitimate explanation for the vice president of a country running off with $53 million. another of these documents appointments out that his half brother is involved in the drug trade. and then there are of course the accounts of karzai himself as being emotional, unstable, suggestions that he uses drugs. >> a lot of allegations there, but i think to the point is whether president karzai can be trusted in a way to run his own country or is he the only game in town, and regardless of troop numbers, there will be billions of dollars needed to run the army that is now being built up by the u.s. and nato. >> that's right. at the nato conference, they pledged to at least ten years of providing beginning $4.1 billion a year, $2.5 billion of that coming from the u.s. but i think it's important for us to recognize as we
that was done back in july of last year before the election. it's about how the president of israel largely symbolic position, adamantly opposed an israeli strike because he said, i guarantee you, if it comes to it, the americans are going to do it. so, a lot of the israeli calculation back in september and october when they were thinking about a strike was, no, let's hold off because we have some confidence that the obama administration, if it comes to it, we'll do it. if it's necessary. a lot of the people who supported president obama said, "mark my words. he is a man of his word, he does this quite seriously." then he turns around and appoints perhaps the most prominent skeptic of any kind of military intervention in iran as his defense secretary. if you're sitting in israel, you're wondering just how reliable is the united states and maybe we should go it alone. so, for that reason alone, simply the appointment of chuck hagel is going to make the israelis more skittish and perhaps more prone to act. >> here's the irony. who said that military action against iran could prove catastrophi
of the country. >> the president's comments made before the election did assist in getting a large gay vote to go his way. >> that was a political strategy and it was a political convenience strategy. >> can republicans ignore that development? >> i think so. i think if you look at across these united states 32 states have basically been supportive of traditional marriage. i think that is the prevailing view in the country. and i think it will be the prevailing view in the highest court in the land. >> we'll stay in new jersey. that is our state for the day. governor chris christie is riding a wave of popularity. three quarters of the voters approve of the job he is doing. should new jersey democrats put up a candidate to run against christie. >> i think you always as a party -- it is a blue state. let's not kid ourselves. hats off to governor christie for having the standing he does. if the democratic party in new jersey can't find somebody to run a really serious campaign against him. until sandy came along chris christie did not seem like the superman that he seems today. there were policy dif

say he does want to upset elections later this year. >> he is only 12 years old, but that is old enough to be immersed in politics in pakistan. >> the government is wrong. they have made our life helle. >> some have thrown their support behind a canadian- pakistani crcleric. his message resonates with people fed up with the breakdown of law and order and an increase of corruption and inflation. many are so angry that even mothers with no relation to the clerics s say they are ready to sacrifice their children. >> i told my children not to be afraid of bullets. take the bullet in your chest. we want change and revolution. our society will not move forward until we become selfless. >> so far he has refused to negotiate with the government, saying all talks will be held in the capital. it is, that has turned into a bunker. security forces have blocked roads. protesters say nothing will stop them and even have a crane to remove blockage from their way. >> they blocked roads with containers, they close roads -- we will walk their. >> his support is far from universal. in fact, there a
election which republicans took control of the congress. and democrats are still spooked by the fact that in a lot of red and purple districts, wolf, they lost because of the crime bill. you remember the crime bill with bill clinton, included in the crime bill was the ban on assault weapons. and so for the last two decades, the democrats have been very reluctant to touch this issue because they know it's going to hurt them, particularly with gun owners who can be very intense and very motivated to come out to vote in midterm elections in particular which we're heading into. >> but public opinion may be evolving now. i'll put up on the screen, a recent poll that we took after the newtown, connecticut massacre. restrictions on guns, 13% say there should be no restricts. 70% say there should be some restrictions. 15% said make all guns illegal. 70% some restrictions which presumably is what the president is going to be calling for seems to suggest this is the time to do something. >> it does. you look at the aggregate numbers. if you're a politician you say, that's great. let's change t
? they were elected to do a job. they put their pants on just like the rest of us. who are they? we hold these people into high regards -- in too high regards for what they are doing for this country. i need to bring this people down to this level so they understand what is going on in this country and not worry about who will be the next president. we have got a president. he should do his job as well as the rest that are in washington. i do not know why people hold these people so high above everybody else. who can take a $218 million a day vacation or a boat ride in this country unless you are a dr. or lawyer? then it will be a short vacation. who can do that? where do they think this money comes from? it doesn't just come up out of the ground. as far as the debt ceiling is concerned, yes, it should be tied together. if we do not quit spending, we will not have anything left to spend. --ry, twitter a different perspective from twitter -- let us hear from william, virginia, has to say. caller: i consider myself an independent. i used to be in the cracked and republican. dax i used to b
the election. >> i want to be clear, i'm not wedded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> in a democracy you can only move forward if both sides albeit having very different philosophical views are willing to come together and govern and that's what we've been lacking. without it, i think we're going to be in terrible trouble. >> much more advice to the president on farid za cara's special "mem"memo to the presid" >>> this past week a surprise move in baseball. this year there will be no new faces at the hall of fame. we've got a hall of fame voter to run all that down for you. >>> well, baseball hall of fame voters pitched a shutout this week electing no one to join the elite in cooperstown. first time since 1996. a lot of new names on the ballot from the so-called steroids era. like barry bonds, mark maguire who broke some of the league's greatest records and linked to performance-enhancing drugs. terrance moore is here to talk about, a hall of
charter. fourthly, we put to the people, and the conference of dialogue to agree a dialogue for elections. anything to do with constitution and the law, we can say if in the conference dialogue the government can carry out whatever is agreed on. the third stage. firstly, a new government to be set up in accordance with the constitution. and also, we have a general congress to have reconciliation and give amnesty to everyone in prison. thirdly, to reestablish the infrastructure and compensate people who have suffered damages. also, talking about amnesty, the country can forfeit its rights. however, we cannot give amnesty on behalf of people because it is the civil right to. amnesty would be general, and only by this amnesty we can get into national reconsolation, when everyone forgives everyone else. these are the main features of the political solution, as we see it. these are only just the headlines that need details, which the government will begin to put details and expand on these points and put this vision in the form of an initiative. this would be followed up in accordance with the
. in the last few years alone, shea elected that he has created 1.75 million jobs. between now and 2035, we can double shale economic impact, double the number of jobs and generate a cumulative $2.5 trillion in new government revenues. to achieve these benefits, we need to safely opened up new land for exploration. we are foolishly locking away too much of our resources on land and off the coast that we should have access to. we need predictable and their regulatory environment. the federal government shouldn't pick the winners and losers, or subject energy projects to endless and duplicative views -- reduce. such roadblocks have stymied vital products, like the keystone pipeline, and that must be built. we shouldn't stop epa's -- we should -- shouldn't have said it that way. it's getting wound up a little bit. we should stop epa's senseless and ideologically driven battle to ban the production and the use of coal. and we should continue with the next generations of nuclear power plants, and we should waste no time in pursuing research that develop alternative sources such as wind, solar, geoth
when we have so much trouble at home? and that debate will rage now between now and the next elections and, particularly, the next presidential elections. >> minister mackay, your nation has been such a loyal ally to the united states, following us into afghanistan. your country was involved to a lesser extent, certainly, in iraq. but considering the outcome in these two places, how would you say your nation's point of view has changed, if it has, on the responsibilities of we democracies to take actions like that? >> well, i'll come directly to that, but i want to play off something that senator mccain said. that in considering interventions, military contributions, foreign aid, there's no question that the very stormy economic situation that we've all come through, the pa jillty of the economy -- fragility of the economy still directly influences a government's thought process. it certainly is a determining factor as to what and if a country will contribute to an intervention. >> cutbacks to the british -- >> 25%. i mean, they're tying up ships, there's soldiers in the field getting
